For a representation of a micro ecosystem that evokes the complexity that the coexistence of organisms entails.


BRONZE MEDAL Nikodem Pręgowski from Poland for the poster “Home”

Anna Naumova from Poland for the poster “Look”

Yurko Gutsulyak from Canada for the poster “Ruin”

For a highly impactful and smartly conceived poster with a wordplay critically commenting about the war in Ukraine.


Vladimir Tsesler from Cyprus for the poster “Belarusian Ornament”
